Expanding out Comms Tool Kit

Posted by Jim KN6PE, 5 Apr 2015

CARES has been playing with Broadband HamNet (Mesh Networking) for the last 2 years. Sunny AG6GR first showed us what was possible back in 2013, Santa Clara County RACES offered WiFi/Mesh Workshop this year, and its now time for us to take it to the next level. Watch for details on some planning sessions to see how we can integrate Ham Radio Mesh Networking into our response.
